I designed this image with the intention of conveying the delicate balanceof life on Earth, and how in many ways it is resting on our ability to makeEarth friendly choices, like reducing, reusing and recycling whenever possible.I like the way the words of the Hopi Prophecy capture it:“We are the people, and now is the time”.Design Title:“Conservation”This artwork is available for licensed use on eco, earth friendly products!For more information about the art, the artist, or available products…..Please visit:or

Smoke Detectors: Choose OPTICAL non-ionizing smoke detectors rather than the IONIZING (as in ionizing radiation) that contain radioactive Americium which is more potent than Plutonium. The ionizing smoke detectors are so toxic that Florence will not even take them on Hazardous Waste Day. Most places will not either. The EPA suggest that you send them to the manufacturer and make them deal with them.
According the Wikipedia:
Americium can be produced in kilogram amounts and has some uses, mostly involving 241Am since it is easiest to produce relatively pure samples of this isotope. Americium is the only synthetic element to have found its way into the household, where one common type of smoke detector contains a tiny amount (about 0.2 microgram) of 241Am as a source of ionizing radiation. This amount emits about 1 microcurie of nuclear radiation when new, with the amount declining slowly as the americium decays into neptunium, a different transuranic element, with a much longer half-life (about 2.14 million years). With its half-life of 432 years, the americium-241 in a smoke detector includes about 5% neptunium after 22 years, and about 10% after 43 years. After the 432-year americium-241 half-life, a smoke detector’s original americium would, by definition, be more than half neptunium.

NEW FEATURE: VitalBodies.net Community blog allows members to post to the blog “Live From The Field” by email.
Those posts that were emailed in will first appear in the “Live From The Field” category and will then be moved to the members own category at a later date.
Spray Update: Got a message from Jodie that if the weather permits (which is a little iffy), ODOT will be spraying Hwy 34 and possibly 101 north of Newport Monday night. They will be going from valley to coast on 34 first, then going up 101, starting north of Newport and ending north of Lincoln City.
Welcome to the VitalBodies.net Community Blog.
This is a new community blog that is updated and maintained by the VitalBodies community.
We hope to have fun contests, awards, give aways, updates and more.
